We have been coming to the island now for 4 years, and when we found The Daily Grind, we found a place where we feel is part of our "home away from home." The coffee is fantastic. Never a bitter cup. The staff is amazing. They are always all friendly and family welcoming. Many of them have become like an extended part of our family, particularly the owners and their family.

We absolutely love the donuts as well, and the bubble gum ice cream and hot cocoa is a hit with our son. The coconut cake and apple fritters? Yum! These (as well as the donuts - which are more cake-like) with a Cafe Aú Lait or Latte of your choice is perfect! The atmosphere the owners have created is welcoming and calming. Free WiFi is helpful, too! ☺️

We will keep coming back whenever we come to the island. We love Topsail, Surf City and The Daily Grind! ☕️❤️

The donuts are just a little bigger than there potable coffee lid what joke, and the coffee is ok, nothing to die for. Come prepared to be disappointed.

My family and I recently visited Surf City and were pleasantly surprised when we found Daily Grind. Our son enjoyed the ice cream while we loved the many different latte options. The fresh donuts were an added bonus! We went back quite a few times... Great local coffee shop!

Stopped be there very early to grab a cup of coffee before heading to Surf City Pier to watch the sunrise. I walked up to the door and noticed it was closed, as I was walking back to my car an employee opened the door to ask if I just wanted coffee and invited me in. That's just something you don't see anywhere else. Well worth the $5 tip on a $2.50 cup of coffee. I will definitely be returing!

The daily grind is a neat little restaurant. We only picked up donuts and some chocolate expresso beans but the staff was very friendly and the donuts tasty. Try the maple bacon and the blueberry.
